My name is Shelley Krause, and I am a storyteller and a matchmaker, both by inclination and profession. At this point in my life, that means that I work as a social media producer and curator as well as a college counselor in an independent school in New Jersey's Delaware Valley (USA). I am on a constant lookout for ways to leverage and empower the interconnected nature of learning communities. I spend my autumns coaching essay-writing, my winters modeling and preaching patience and perspective, my springs getting to know a new group of students as I help them get to know themselves, and my summers thinking deeply about each of my rising seniors in turn as I write letters in support of their candidacy for university admission.
I "learn out loud" at Connected Learnings (http://shelleykrause.wordpress.com) and my personal haiku blog is But Wait, There's More! (http://butwait.blogspot.com)
I am the lead curator of the College Lists Wiki, which you can see at http://collegelists.pbworks.com
I'm always on the lookout for other learning tribes / networked learning folks who are interested in connecting. You can find me online here:
You can also see some of my recent conversations/presentations here.
In addition to my "day job," I maintain an active role in my local communities. I have served as the clerk of the Princeton Friends School's Board, in addition to serving on the board of the Delaware-Raritan Girl Scout Council (now the Girl Scouts of Central and Southern NJ). I am currently serving as the webmaster of Princeton Friends Meeting.
I'd love to hear from you about what you're up to or what you think we could productively collaborate on. I'm emailable at shelley.krause (at) gmail (dot) com.
